Editors Notes: 

The second run of the Tuesday evening "circular" railtours to be run around the "Surrey Circular" route by Steam Dreams ran on 11th June 2019 and appeared to be better filled than the first, seen last week. Again headed by "Mayflower" our clips this time also feature South Western Railway EMUs, although not so intended! The first, a class 350 pairing, as it passed over a noticably wonky bit of track, briefly obscured the accelerating B1 at Barnes whilst the second, one of the brand-new class 707s which will shortly be retired by SWR, drops in as the steam train arrives at Chertsey for a water stop.
